A request (or three..) from the Author…

As I approach the date of my sponsored walk, from Valley Parade (home of Bradford City Football Club) to Glanford Park (home of Scunthorpe United), from 25th – 27th April, I am looking for some help with a few things…

1) More publicity! I need retweets, shares, visits & views via all of the important links below:






Valley Parade, Bradford

2) Can you help by donating or sponsoring me? The walk is a total of 57 miles, so either a flat donation or so much per mile. You can donate using the http://gofundme.com/friends-of-pakati link wherever you are in the world

Glanford Park, Scunthorpe

3) If you follow, or contribute in some way to this website/blog, or read it at any time, what interests you about it? What other things would you like to see, or read about? Do you have anything to contribute to us? Stories or photos? Any comments you would like to tell or ask us? Let us know about any of these things, through contacts on this site or email friendsofpakati@gmail.com at any time.

Thank you.

  1. Hi Chris, looking forward to doing the last leg with you on Saturday, wondered what I could do to help and you asking me for the last leg is great.

    1. hi Brian…thanks for saying you will join us! plan is to set off at 7.30 from the Fair Green Hotel & we should in theory arrive between 12 & 12.30 all being well. 4 of us have a table booked at the club restaurant. its £30 so let me know if you want to eat with us too so i can book an extra place. Also if any want to sponsor you then direct them to the gifundme.com/friends-of-pakati fundraising page or take cash to give & i will bank it & transfer to the page myself. cheers Chris
